News from the weekend in the sports world, transportation funding and drug testing in Wisconsin, and UWM's new building.

Pet turtles, car thefts and one big, fat check to the Wisconsin Humane Society.
Take in this rainy morning with a cup of coffee, a spoonful of sugar and a quick read of our Morning Links.

How the New "Structural Deficit" Stacks Up
Will Walker, and Wisconsin, regress to the mean?
For some historical perspective on the structural deficit numbers being thrown around, here's a graph made using figures from the latest Legislative Fiscal Bureau memo, the one showing a $1.77 billion shortfall through the end of the 2015-17 biennium, which would be June 30, 2017.
